What Is Meant By Accepted for Value (A4V)
What is Accepted for Value? The words are making their way across the Internet, but what it actually means is a little obscure. To make it simple, Acceptance for Value is a commercial remedy. What exactly is a remedy? Simple explanation is that a remedy is a commercial right that is acquired through a commercial instrument. For example, any tickets, tax bills,etc...
Accepted for value is an authorized signature on a commercial instrument. Leaving the instrument without an endorsement ( your signature or non-acquiescence) relinquishes remedies that are offered through the instrument by renouncing defects in the instrument.
Acceptance: Is an agreement by a specific act or by incrimination from behaviour, to the terms of an offer which will form a binding contract. If an Acceptance alters the terms or affixes new ones, this is treated as a counter offer.
Acceptance: The taking and receiving of a thing in good part, as if it were an inferred agreement to a prior act, which might have been vanquished or circumvented if such Acceptance was not made.
The Illusion Of Money
When there is an instrument resulting from an agreement that has already pre-existed as an agreement or contract, then it would not have to be dispensed for value. The issuer's safeguards are in the contract.
If the contract of the person who receives the instrument is a U.S. citizen who has received a violation ticket it is not carried out to the fulfillment of the transferor, the person can authenticate the claim with that contract.
If a pre-existing contract does not exist, then the instrument must be issued for value. Issued for value means the same exact thing as issued to receive value. The instrument in itself has no value whatsoever $6 when it is issued, it is issued to try to receive value.
It is pursuing a person to agree to accept the offer entirely, which would waive any remedy available. Whenever you receive a bill to collect taxes, or any disciplinary indictments, the assumption of the basis for the issuance of the instrument itself violates U.S. statute.
When neither a contract or a verbal agreement is not involved to act under those statutes, there is no compulsion to pay. All a person needs to do is apply a qualified endorsement (A4V) to the instrument, that will factually turn that instrument into the payment.
The transferee receives a security interest in the instrument and becomes the actual holder in time. The responsibility is retained by the issuer, instead of it being allocated to you. In this situation, you can impose the instrument back to the issuer. Then they would become the transferee.
UCC 1-201. General definitions
44. "Value". Except as otherwise provided with respect to negotiable instruments and bank collections (sections 3-303, 4-210, 4-211) a person gives "value" for rights if he quires them:
(a) In return for a binding commitment to extend credit or for the extension of immediately available credit whether or not drawn upon and whether or not a charge-back is provided for in the event of difficulties in collection; or
(b) As security for in total or partial satisfaction of a preexisting claim; or
(c) By accepting delivery pursuant to a preexisting contract for purchase; or
(d) Generally, in return for any consideration sufficient to support a simple contract.
1-201 reads that a person must give value to receive rights. If one party is providing value then the other is requested to provide rights in exchange.

Contracts And Promises
If a contract or a promise that is verbal or unspoken, then that agreement cannot really be imposed. Any instrument that is requiring implementation on it is commonly nothing but an offer to create a new contract. If you put your signature on the instrument, you have accepted the terms of the new contract. In this situation it is your responsibility to pay the debt.
Whenever an issuer creates an instrument for value and issues it, he is risking the legal responsibility on it. If you challenge the instrument the issuer may be responsible for paying you.
You are in a superior position if the issuer of the instrument does not make a counter offer to your offer. Commerce is set up to favor creditors that are seeking to collect on claims. Commerce is based on Merchant Law.
Most of the time the only thing that needs to be determined is who is the creditor and who owes the debt? Once that has been determined (Ex. you sign a ticket with signature) any other facts regarding the claim is unrelated.
Acceptance for Value authenticates you as the creditor.
Value For Rights
If you look at UCC 1-201 subsection (a), here are some examples of the exchange of value for rights.
Excluding 3-303, 4-210, 4-211, a person gives value for rights if he gains them:
(a) In return for a binding commitment to extend credit or for the extension of immediately available credit whether or not drawn upon and whether or not a charge-back is provided for in the event of difficulties in collection.
-A person (borrower) gives value (right to foreclose)(asset on the bank's books) for rights (use of public credit) if he gets those rights in return for a commitment to extend credit (promissory note).
-A person (lender aka creditor) gives value (use of public credit) for rights(to foreclose) if he gets those rights in return for a commitment to extend (public) credit (to a borrower aka debtor)
That is in the public.
-A person (borrower) gives value (private man's credit via signature on a note) for rights (use of currency) if he gets those rights in return for a commitment to extend credit. (his private credit to the lender)
-A person (lender aka debtor) gives value (liability on its books) for rights (use of man's private credit) if he gets those rights in return for his commitment to extend (public) credit (to the debtor)
That is from private to public.
Modern Money Mechanics
Where does money come from?
The first thing to understand about money is what it is, and how it was created. Money is not exactly by means of definition, money. Money is based on credit which means that money in reality is not an object of value, money is debt.
The creation of money is the ability to get a human to agree to repay the money. Money is not produced out of thin air, there is a need for someone to acquire the debt from credit that has been issued.
Money needs the force of a human to provide a signature for it before it is created, it is the signature that retains the value. This can be proved as fact simply by the reality that a bank cannot issue its own credit.
This is where the term extension in the financial markets is derived. The bank is extending the credit from another human to the receiving party. This is not a loan, it is an allowance from a previous activity.
The credit is available through the private human to the public bank and then it goes back to the U.S. Citizens which becomes a public borrower. The human is unable to enter into the public because he is a living, breathing, physical human being. In order to operate in the public the human needs a U.S. citizen to stand for him in the public domain.
All that is required from the U.S. citizen is to have a human sign the instruments, so in fact it is the human that must represent the citizen and furnish his bodily strength by his signature.
The human would be supposed to be a compliant and willing party without obtaining any rights, without agreeing to terms that would be beneficial to him. If he applies his signature without determining new terms then he will not gain any rights in reimbursement for the value that he provided, which was the extension of his credit.
If an instrument is issued for value without having a written contract to support it is nothing but a demand for a man's credit. They are nothing but applications for credit, they need you the human being for money. If he signs the document correctly, he will become the creditor.
Meet Your Strawman!
What is meant by my "Public Person"? (Strawman)
A person (Citizen of the United States) exchanges value for rights ( your birth certificate equates to an authorized security interest) in return for his pledge to broaden public credit and benefits to the Citizen of the United States.
A United States Citizen (person) gives a guarantee to the United States for the right to conduct commerce within the United States, if he accepts those rights in trade for his assurance to extend public credit, and to become collateral for the debt of the United States. Which is a public to public agreement.
A United States citizen (person) trades value (A humans private credit to the United States) for the right to engage in commerce in the United States. He receives those rights by committing his human being to extend credit to the Government created Strawman (United States Citizen).
When you apply "Accepted For Value", you are invoking your rights as the recipient of the Trust created by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 under the Constitution. This Right exists due to the Constitutional Oath taken by the President when he is inaugurated.
Sen. Scott Brown Takes Oath Of Office!
Oath Of Office.
Judges as well as all other Federal employees have to take the Oath required by 5 USC § 3331.
“An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services shall take the following oath:
‘I, Their Name, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.’”
There is quite a difference between an Oath and an Oath of Office!
As long as there remains an Officer which has taken the Oath required by the Constitution then the people will retain a Trustee for the Trust of which they are the recipient. The people hold a precursor to the claim from an already existing contract. A contract which is founded on Constitutional Guarantees.
The remedy to this is the Certificate of Birth.
It represents the precursor to the claim you hold against the United States. It is also all the evidence you need that a contract is already existent. It exemplifies your pre-paid account that you have available to discharge debt.
What is Acceptance?
You can imply acceptance simply by remaining silent. It can be construed that you have accepted an offer, even though it was not presented in obvious words. Simply because the person that the offer is being made to does not respond to the offer. Especially in a state of affairs that the person making the offer as well as the person receiving the offer validates the offerer's belief of a reply, the offerer's practical conclusion that the lack of a response equates to an acceptance of the offer.
Silence would not normally be construed as acceptence of an offer, when the offeree has a duty to speak and does not do so, then this is realized as acceptence. If you behave like you are a citizen of the US in your communications, you will have no obligation to respond.
Instead, if you act like you are a true beneficiary on the trusts created by the Constitution through the actions of FDR, they do and due to their silence it is also considered acceptance.
Your interaction should transfer the terms of the contract to another party, a party that has a Delegation of Authority to be a representative of the United States.
The President can coerce the US, the President has agents that have the ability to do it for him. These three agents head the executive departments of Homeland Security, Treasury, and Justice.
The banker for the United States is the Secretary of the Treasury and should be the one that receives the endorsed instrument. Once it gets there it will be treated as a check and deposited in order to reconcile an account.
Whenever you A4V, you actually become the holder of the instrument eventually. Once this is accomplished you have the power to enforce the instrument upon the issuer.
This will give him the duty to pay as long as it issued for value and only if this is recognized and has been endorsed properly.
To become the holder in due course, then the holder must meet all the fundamentals in 3-302.
3-302 Holder in Due Course
A. Subject to subsection C of this section and section 3-106, subsection D, "holder in due course" means the holder of an instrument if:
1. The instrument when issued or negotiated to the holder does not bear such apparent evidence of forgery or alteration or is not otherwise so irregular or incomplete as to call into question its authenticity; and
2. The holder took the instrument
a) for value
b) in good faith
c) without notice that the instrument is overdue or has been dishonored or that there is an uncured default with respect to payment of another instrument issued as part of the same series;
d) without notice that the instrument contains an unauthorized signature or has been altered;
e) without notice of any claim to the instrument described in section 3-306; and
f) without notice that any party has a defense or claim in recoupment described in section 3-305, subsection A.
Winston Shrout New A4V update
"If an instrument is not issued for consideration the issuer has a defense to the obligation to pay the instrument."
If you consider the converse of that statement then, If an instrument has been issued for consideration, the issuer does not have a defense to the responsibility to pay the instrument.
Refusal for Cause
Overall, it would be better to A4V every single instrument you receive rather than refusing for cause any instruments at all.
For many reasons.
When you Refuse for Cause, you are actually refusing to accept the instrument due to flaws in the instrument.
If you Refuse For Cause you will have to be quite knowledgeable of statutes codes etc... This is not something that the majority of people have the time or desire to learn. This is especially detrimental to those of us who are Freemen On The Land.
It will also be a requirement that the transferee deals with the specific defects. You will need to have the ability to think quickly on your feet in the courtroom.
This can become a very intricate issue when you can simply A4V. When you Accept For Value you are actually helping the country by accepting all their offers to you rather then simply refusing them.
In reality you will be helping them during a time of emergency (bankruptcy) by diminishing the National Debt.
ACCEPTED FOR VALUE SUCCESS!
Definition of "Without Recourse": An individual who endorses a check or promissory note using the phrase without recourse specifically declines to accept any responsibility for payment.
If you add the term Without Recourse to your signature it creates another authorized validation. It will remove the guarantor out of the calculation. This will remove all liabilities the backer may have had on the instrument.
When you use this kind of endorsement, you are not a willing or responsible party. Generally when using the Accepted for Value, it would be better for you if you did not use this action so you can be perceived as an assistant to the United States.
You will be accepting responsibility in the agreement and will be viewed as an ally.
Definition of Suretyship: One who has contracted to be responsible for another, especially one who assumes responsibilities or debts in the event of default.
All Citizens of the United States are assumed to have entered into an agreement to be the Surety for the reimbursement of the National Debt. It is a better position to be a Surety then it is being an accommodating party, that gives all its credit as well as its name and gets nothing in return.
A Surety will receive a benefit for their agreement to be a Surety.
An example of Suretyship.
A police Officer needs two sureties before he can fulfill his official duties.
He finds two people that have agreed to be his sureties, They would then sign a document (bond) as surety for the officer.
The officer would then give the sureties something of value such as a deed of trust, to be used as a security for them in case it would be required of them to repay a debt incurred by the officer.
If the officer held the position of a tax collector, and became deceased, all of the accounts he held would have to be settled.
If there was not enough money in his accounts to repay the taxes that he had collected, any personal property that he held would be used to reconcile the debt.
The United States and its creditors will not take the time or money to liquidate the personal property belonging to the dead officer. They will however look to the sureties to collect the debt.
The sureties are obligated to repay the debt at once!
The sureties will become the holders of the Deed Of Trust in due course and they will attain the right to enforce the deed.
They will have the ability to liquidate the real property that is connected to the Deed of Trust, in this way they will be compensated.
The heirs of the dead officer has no claim to the person's property, this is because the Deed of Trust that the sureties retain is an enforceable instrument.
A Suretey for the United States will have the same options available to them.
Considering that the sureties are mere fictions, the people who are used to symbolize those sureties can choose to apply their pre-paid account to pay those instruments that they receive and are issued and transferred for value.
They are not required to pay with their Public Deeds, their Accounts, or from cash from the persons they represent.
If they pay with a public currency, they have every right to be compensated. If they choose to use the pre-paid account, they go through the Secretary of the Treasury to settle the debt.
Which ever way it is done the surety stays in honor and behaves corresponding with his promise.
A Trust was created by the Constitution, and one was created by Roosevelt in 1933 when he had all the Gold and Silver confiscated.
It is the people who are the true recipients of these Trusts, if they correctly acknowledge their Birth Certificates.
Accepted for Value (A4V) will confirm your place as "Holder in Due Course", transferor, enforcer of the instrument and the true recipients of those Trusts.
A4V (Accepted for Value) is an authorized certification, you will receive a security interest in the instrument.
Any instrument that is not backed by an premeditated written obligation to pay or perform must be issued for value.
The issuer of the instrument ultimately is the one that holds the liability on the instrument.
Unless an instrument issued for value has been endorsed it has no actual value.
Any instrument that is issued or has been transferred for value is:
- a promise of performance, to the level that the promise has been performed.
- to obtain a Security Interest or other Lien in the instrument, without having to obtain said lien through the proper Judicial Proceedings.
- To be used as payment, or to be used as security for a previous claim against any person, if the actual claim is due or not.
- To be substituted for a negotiable instrument.
- As a substitute for the burdening of an irreversible obligation to a third party by the person accepting the instrument.

From my understanding, and I may be incorrect, you would file you ucc in the state you resided in when you became a citizen, if you have a social security number they created a strawman. Once you have gone through all the proper steps you should be able to A4V. I would suggest looking more into it before you try it
Johnny T on June 07, 2012:
Question. If someone is a US citizen but was NOT born in the US (meaning birth certificate not from US and therefore no strawman was created?), can that person still do a A4V?

You know I've just about learned not to spread anymore of this to my friends. They think I've lost my mind. They claim the Nom de Guerre name on any gov. issued license is them. To them they don't understand the simple theory of your all CAPS name but they believe it's them. I can type for hours on how the banking works and they don't have the foggiest idea about nothing.
Excalibur on August 17, 2011:
Great post by the way and by far, the most sensible. Question: if we can simply send billing statements (marked as money orders payable to the creditor) to the US Treasury, why do we even need to use the A4V process? In my experience, creditors, have either refused the returned instrument with all the 'proper' markings or ignorred them completely.
Weirdshroom on September 07, 2010:
Great post. This is the most straight forward and concise explanation of A4V I have read. The videos are also wisely chosen. May God's grace shine brightly on you.
